white spot on muzzle
I have a six year old jack russell terrier. I recently noticed a small white spot on her muzzle that is a little smaller than a pea, it appears to be pus filled but isn't and there is no hair on it.
I tried to clean it with peroxide and it didn't seem to bubble so I proceeded to put neosporin on it. What could this be? I don't believe it's ringworm and have a two year old son who loves his dog and I don't want him to get it.
I'm afraid it's impossible for me to say what's causing this white spot, as it could be any number of things.
Dogs are prone to a host of different skin conditions, and it could possibly be ringworm, or Mange, or it could be a cyst of some sort.
The only way to find out for sure is to have your vet examine your dog. That way you'll get a definitive answer, and if any treatment is needed you can get it taken care of.
Best of luck.
